Try clean the ice off your windows at -40 and no gas stations for 100
miles. :( OTOH, I saw the Northern Lights lighting up the entire sky,
bright as day.
I got caught one night in a blizzard near Cincinnati. It was a little
over 30 miles to get home. It took over eight hours, and it used a full
tank of gas in my truck. I was more concerned about the dumb ass semi
drivers blowing me off the road, like they did to a lot of other
vehicles. One passed me while I was on a patch of ice and spun the van
720 degrees and it tried to roll over.
